Links Loved

12 April 2014


1. Filling my fashion Pinterest board with street-style photos by Vanessa Jackman.
2. I'm thinking of buying an ebook and this DIY is lovely!
3. I love Lea Goren's patterns, I'm sure you've seen that cat dress (hers is the original cat print). The scarves are equally pretty and I loved the lookbook! (and the girl's hair color!)
4. Found this link through Miss Moss, Kate Miss' house is just beautiful!

A short trip with the girls!

10 April 2014

Last weekend me and my best friend Helene visited our dear friend Lorelai, who lives in a city 2 hours from ours. Larissa is a big city which surprised me pleasantly as it's more beautiful and more fun than I expected! We had walks by the river and in a lot of parks, through city alleys and had lunch in the most perfect tavern ever!

April Desktop Calendar

1 April 2014



I was too busy in the beginning of March and instead of making a calendar at the middle of the month I thought I should better wait for the next one, so here you are! I'm a little late again, even if I had the post ready on Draft since March..!

Personal logo process!

22 March 2014

I've been working on my logo for months, actually too many months! If you're a designer you probably understand the issue that when you make soemthing for yourself nothing is ever good enough. I tried numerous designs, most of really different in style, as my style was changing as well. I wanted something minimal but not too minimal and with a shape somewhere in it but not too loaded. Some weeks ago I designed the bird-on-branch image for a tattoo I want to do in color, I had used that bird on a previous header here in the blog, so after trying to do something with only text, I saw the tattoo image on my dashboard and it was the "why not?" idea that made it work!

As you can see, I really like the idea of gold lately, I changed the social icons and sidebar titles yesterday, but in the end I thought something more minimal worked better. I'm not going to post everything I did from the first time I tried to make my logo for obvious reasons (meaning: they're not that good!) but here's the last process!
I'm really happy that it's finally done, now I only need to make a decent, more professional portfolio, until then I'm using tumblr because it's free and has easy grid themes. Check it here!

Samantha Pleet Spring 2014

21 March 2014

(complete lookbook here)

This season, Samantha Pleet created a fancy short film for her spring 2014 collection, titled “arcadia” and was inspired by stories from darwin’s journals. It's always inspiring when there's a story behind a designer's work! A lot of tropical (or not) vacation vibes, just to set the mood for summer! The film was directed by Sarah Sophie Flicker and Maximilla Lukas, starring among others Emily Theobald and Hannah Metz, Carlen Altman, narrated by Tennessee Thomas. Check the Fall 2014 film as well, it's even prettier!
